FrechetDistribution[, , ]
represents the Frechet distribution with shape parameter , scale parameter , and location parameter .

DetailsDetails

  • The Frechet distribution gives the asymptotic distribution of the maximum value in a sample from a distribution such as the Cauchy distribution.
  • FrechetDistribution is also known as type II extreme value distribution.
  • The probability density for value in a Frechet distribution is proportional to for and zero otherwise.
  • The probability density for value in a Frechet distribution with location parameter is proportional to for and zero otherwise.
  • FrechetDistribution allows and to be any positive real numbers and to be any real number.
  • FrechetDistribution can be used with such functions as Mean, CDF, and RandomVariate.
